Tusq is a very modern/romantic restaurant. The menu changes fairly often but the quality of the food is superb. If you can request a more private area, you can have a romantic eveing with great food. Additionally, larger/business dinners can be accomodated and I have had business guests at Tusq for dinner and have received very positive comments. Tusq is... More

The positives...Nice atmosphere, great location, friendly service. And the chocolate cheesecake was 'to die for'. very very good! The piano playing was really nice. I enjoyed it. The negatives...Quite expensive, and the bathrooms weren't very nice. Not as nice as I would expect for such a nice restaurant. Definitely a let down. Would I go again?? yes I would but... More

My wife and I dined at Tusq for our anniversary. I did read a few reviews and was not going there with high expectations, but was quite surprised with the overall experience. Our server was very good, the portion of food was very good and very tasty. I would recommend the restaurant. The atmosphere was pleasant and I will certainly... More

I went to TusQ for dinner as part of a large business group. It is housed in an older building that used to be used by the Oddfellows and other "lodges". The decor is interesting and comfortable. The menu has good variety, with many selections you would not find elsewhere. I had a Caesar salad - very good, with real... More

I travel to Saskatoon several times per year and always stop here once each visit. Good wines. Entrees change some from season to season. Desserts are always great. Very good coffee. I like to stop by before 7 pm and get better service earlier in the evening. I never leave disappointed in the food or ambiance.

Booked a reservation for 5 on a Saturday evening. When arriving we decided to make a reservation in the piano bar for after dinner cocktails (things going smoothly so far). After finishing our appetizers a staff member from the piano bar approached our dinner table to inform us that they "could not" take any reservations in the piano bar and... More

Although this restaurant came highly recommended - we won't be recommending it to anyone further. Of 8 entrees on the menu - 2 were not available (another 2 were steak). We travelled 5 hours and this restaurant was a destination on our weekend trip, only to find out they didn't have the Braised Buffalo Ribs,which is why we went there!... More

I visited in the winter and it was cold out so I was wearing a hat when I walked in (I am female and it was -30oC). The hostess rudely told me that I was not allowed in because I was wearing a hat. So I took it off and asked if I could meet my friends, she then allowed... More

Very good food, attentive friendly service, but potatoes should arrive hot on a slow Monday evening. Otherwise, great restaurant. Will go again, as the rice was killer!

I brought a client to dinner here on a Tuesday evening and it was perfect. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The recommendations were helpful. I had the bison ribs and they were tender and delicious.
